Walking in the Dolomites
The Dolomites offer breathtaking alpine scenery among mountains flanked by well-graded paths and excellent mountain refuges that verge on hotels. The region is easily accessible by means of a fine network of public transport from major towns and travel hubs, such as Venice, Verona, Munich and Innsbruck. Any one of the fabulous multi-day walks in this guide would make a memorable holiday in Italy's spectacular Dolomite mountains. The author weaves the best of her 20-year experience and knowledge of this dramatic region into an original selection of itineraries on foot across each Dolomite group. Many walks follow mule-tracks constructed by troops during the First World War, when Italy fought Austria for possession of crazy summits and tunnels were hewn through impossible mountain-sides. Everything from a stroll through woods and meadows to family routes, steep rocky zigzag passages and hands-on clambers is covered. The highlights are emphasised and the routes are furnished with fascinating explanations of wildlife and flowers. This full-colour revised edition has a wealth of inspiring photos, detailed maps, myriad new routes and heaps of practical help on travelling and accommodation. Book jacket.
